Rules Of The Most Complicated Board Game Ever

learning-game-rules-video.jpg

This is a video from Rhett and Link (whose honest mobile home commercial is a classic that I watch bi-weekly) explaining the rules of 'Risky Settlers, Knights and Allies of the Lords of Dominion of Earth, Pandemic Edition'. It's a jocular take on the difficulty of learning the rules of a game you've never played before. Me? I've sworn off board games ever since I was dishonorably discharged from my post as Dungeon Master after I was caught hiding weighted dice in my wizard hat. Thank God they didn't search my magic pouch.

Hit the jump for the video.

Thanks to Tam, who agrees there's nothing more satisfying than flipping a game board before somebody officially wins because then they can never get that win back.

  • I love this game!

    That mobile home commercial is seriously one of the greatest commercials of all times.

  • Chris

    Rhett and Link are great, their humour is gentle which can be comforting these days.

  • Frédéric Purenne

    I still think WarHammer 40k is more complicated...

  • depends on how many of the 4 completely different sets of rules you have memorized over the past decade

  • Brant_Alan

    Am I the only person who doesn't really find the whole "It's funny because it's blatantly over the top and very complicated" angle that funny?

  • Jason Lau

    I don't, either. I think it would be more funny if it actually resembled the rules of the games they're making fun of.

  • Nikola Šuša

    Dodger seems bored.
